JAPAN AND AMERICA: FRIENDS IN VIDEO GAMES.
OTHER COUNTRIES IRRELEVANT.
Getting nuked was the best thing that ever happened to Japan, prove me wrong.
You utterly destroy them, their supporters, their infrastructure, and damn near wipe out an entire generation of their men. You hit them so hard they lose all identity as a nation, and then you reach down and you give them a helping hand, gently raising them from the dirt while apologizing and saying "We're sorry, we really didn't want it to come to this..." and then you gently mold them in your own image. Two generations down the line, they are confused. Four generations down the line, they aren't really sure why they were fighting you to begin with. Now? Greatest allies- we come to them in any time of need with any help we can, and we don't ask anything of them in return.
That is how you build a nation.
Its what we failed to do in Afghanistan and Iraq.
I don't see any of that itt.
looks like you're the one that needs to go back,
